Fanions rug by BKS

The Fanions rug which was shown at young talents competition [D3] CONTEST at imm cologne plays with an optical illusion. Traditional rug fringes become modern graphic elements that give the impression of an axonometric projection.Therefore the rather flat felt surface gets a 3D look, that transforms the rug into a flying carpet.


'Pod' chair by Benjamin Hubert for De Vorm

Anyone who has ever worked in an open-plan office knows that privacy and seclusion can be scarce within this now ubiquitous work environment.

The young Swedish designer trio Form Us With Love realised this new pendant light which serves, due to its acoustic characteristics as well as a sound barrier. The lamp shade is made from modular felt panels, which can be assembled on site making ‘Hood’ a flat pack product.


Together with his companion Aleksej Iskos the Copenhagen based designer Boris Berlin developed this new armchair made of moulded felt for the Swedish manufacturer Blå Station. We met him at this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair and talked about the piece and the design approach it is based on. Enjoy!

'ff1' or 'fox and freeze1' by James van Vossel and Tom de Vrieze

The newly founded Belgian design studio fox and freeze started by James van Vossel and Tom de Vrieze on October 2009 recently presented their first project.

The ‘ff1’ lounge chair is made from one square sheet of synthetic felt, which is twisted and twisted again, just like a scarf, ending in an asymmetric, stable object. The structure is self-supporting, so beside the flax rope which contracts the chair, there is no additional material needed.
